The KB

The year 1932 saw the arrival of the biggest and most classis Lincoln yet: the KB. The new V-12 of 448 cubic inches and 150 horsepower was the largest and most powerful Lincoln engine of the era.

The Motorcar Offered

The 234A is the most stylish of the production Lincoln sedans built in 1932. The exterior finish is a pale gray upper body and fenders with a tan lower body and french gray stripe. The car is fitted with the correct Beals and Selkirk trunk in pristine condition. Its blind rear quarter panels add privacy to the elegant intimacy of the compact owner's compartment. Upholstery in several
shades of tan broadcloth, in fine condition, complement the overall interior appearance. The interior hardware and fittings including two vanities are complete and original. The overall appearance of the interior is one of restrained elegance.

It is believed that this car is the only surviving example of the 1932 two-window town sedan.

Although an older restoration, this vehicle has been thoroughly upgraded both mechanically and cosmetically in the last three years. Noted Lincoln specialist Ray Theriault upgraded the steering gear to 37-39 Lincoln type, making the steering effortless. The KB has recently been fitted with new tires, directional signals, LED lighting in tail lights and other safety features. It is offered in ready to use condition.

Included with the car is the original owner's handbook, as well as some important Lincoln tools including a jack, hub wrench and hub cap wrench.
